Deep Thoughts at Trader Joe's

Why did they change the name of their banana-vanilla yogurt from "banilla" to "vanana"?

Maybe they didn't want to be associated with this: http://www.banilla.com/
or this:
http://banillashoney.blogspot.com/

Maybe they even found really gross and disturbing stuff that they wanted nothing to do with and changed it. Or maybe vanana is sexier than banilla and speaks to our archaic senses better?

I don't know for sure, but Stonyfield Farms has Banilla flovored yogurt too. I'm guessing it was a trademark issue...
